Claiming our Feminine Sexuality

We have forgotten we are holy. In the throes of patriarchal rule, we left behind our ability to serve as channels of the sacred. There was a time in the history of women when we were the means through which men (and likely other women) found their way to divine awakening–through the act of being sexually intimate with a woman. We – as women – have forgotten we are holy.

Our sexuality is our own. It belongs solely to us. And yet, we leave it sitting on the shelf until it’s called for by someone else who wants it. We have forgotten how to live and breathe as the sensual beings we are, the holy deities of the Goddess we are. We no longer remember what it is to exude and express that essence beyond the call of our lover to be sexual.

We wait to be desired and wanted as validation of our worth. Rather than understand the purity of being Woman, we set her aside until another confirms through their desire that we are something to be valued, loved, adored, cherished. The question I pose to you today is how do we reconnect to that essence? How do we reclaim our own sexuality in its fullness, in its beauty and hallowed grace?

There are very nice phrases we’ve come to use, such as ‘love yourself first.’ Yes, I believe we’re very much remembering how to do that. And I don’t sense this is about loving ourselves. This is about a fundamental disconnect from our sexuality, from the power of what it is for us as women to own our sexuality and perhaps even more so from an acceptance by ourselves of who we are as sexual beings. We’ve become so ‘pure’ in accordance with societal, religious and cultural expectations–we’ve forgotten who we are.

It’s time to WAKE UP and fully remember who we are as sexual women, as channels and vessels of all that is the Sacred Feminine. We are the very gateways through which our lovers access the divine potency of true ecstasy. And we have forgotten. We must first give ourselves permission to be sexual, to feel sexual, to engage and initiate our sexuality in ways that are new and outside ordinary boundaries and acceptable ways of being. We must press beyond what we have known and felt is safe in our expression, in our remembrance, in our utterance and crying out for what our feminine essence longs to bare. This is our time now. No longer need we fear the repercussion of speaking out, acting out, stepping out on behalf of the heart-womb-body connection. The stirrings that come from within have too long been silenced in fear, punishment and self hatred. Enough. It’s time to claim our sexual power in its fullness, to unleash the volcano of passion of the Sacred Feminine in all her glory and fire.

    Ohhh my Goddess!!! Claiming our sexuality is a ripening that all women must embrace. The fruit of sacred labor, the Divine wholeness that we are. There is so much in the gift of this…… Shouting it to the rooftops and beyond. Here is where the essence of Divine reciprocity resides!!! I love your sharing thank you.

    1. I feel it so much too – we must embrace all of who we are. Not just the accepted parts – ALL. And I can feel the need to conform falling away, gently and sometimes even with a ferocious force we have yet to understand. It’s all FOR us. xo

    I love that you separate loving ourselves from the empowerment of women to claim their sexuality. There is a difference. Let us be courageous enough, as you so lead us and show us, to call it exactly what it is … Claiming ourselves as a whole person … Meaning that our sexuality is also in tact. I love you and I love what you’ve shared. Amen.

    1. Yes, there is a difference. Too easy to make it about sexuality, about patriarchy and something outside of us. We have learned how to love ourselves. We must now embrace every part of what we feel, experience, become, abhor and love. It is all beautiful. I love you. And I love how we share on a level of ‘getting it’ that is alive in the now. xoxo

I always love to hear your thoughts....xx
